    Snow Tracks Toward New York City, Boston

    Following a little snow on Saturday, steadier snow arriving from the Midwest threatens to create more of a nuisance for travelers across the Northeast for the second half of the weekend.

    A major winter storm will not close out the weekend, but there will still be enough snow to create slick travel across the Northeast Sunday through Sunday night.

    In general, 1 to 3 inches of snow will continue to spread to the I-95 corridor from near Philadelphia to New York City to Boston to Portland Sunday afternoon and night.

    While far from the greatest snowstorm to strike the Northeast this year, snow totals of 1 to 3 inches are enough to cause slick travel. Such slippery conditions could unfold on interstates 76, 80, 81, 84, 86, 90 and 99.

    Motorists should prepare for a period of reduced visibility, while airline passengers may encounter flight delays.

    Outside of the heaviest snow zone, the storm will also bring a fluffy coating to an inch across upstate New York and northern New England. To the south, a little rain and snow will clip Washington, D.C., late Sunday.

    The storm system set to end the weekend on a snowy note in the Northeast is a bit stronger than the system that delivered a few snow showers to the mid-Atlantic on Saturday.

    Fresh frigid air will plunge into the Northeast in the wake of Sunday's snow. That cold will hold firm through at least Wednesday as AccuWeather.com meteorologists monitor the potential for a Southern storm to have possible impacts in the Northeast due to snow, ice and rain before Valentine's Day.
